Gizzy was neutered yesterday. I looked him over last night when he came home and he was fine. I didn't notice anything in the morning, but its possible I didn't see it because I just gave him a glance over before leaving. When I got home and took him out for some love I noticed this big red spot and spazzed. I got help from my mom and tried wipping what I thought was blood from him. It didn't come off, not even a little! Hence I do not believe its blood. What else could it be though? I feel so bad for him. :( I did look over his cage, there is nothing he could have hurt himself on and remember, the red spot won't come off. I did put some anti baterial ointment on it.

He could have gotten scratched up and it's already scabbed/been licked clean?

Its not a scab though, its like skin that looks almost burnt. There are some brownish spots. Someone suggested on another forum it might be from injecting Baytril. So I will ask on monday if they did that or not.

You don't think it could be over excessive stress causing spots on the skin like this?
